Superb Roger sweeps Masters Title

19.11.2006 | Tennis

Roger has rounded off his terrific year, dominating the men’s tennis circuit to win the Tennis Masters Cup. He overwhelmed James Blake, claiming his third title 6-0, 6-3, 6-4 in Sunday's championship match. Roger wrapped it all up in just 1 hour and 37 minutes.

 

"It's quite incredible to finish off by winning the Masters Cup, the world championship so to speak," Roger said. "It's obviously a perfect end to an incredible season. I had to laugh at one stage I was playing so well, everything I tried today worked."

 

Blake quickly discovered that the all-or-nothing approach that worked earlier in the tournament did not unsettle Roger, who had progressed to the final with a straight sets semifinal win over his 2006 nemesis, Nadal. It took Blake a full 34 minutes to get on the scoreboard, finally holding serve in the second game of the second set — and even then he had to save two breakpoints. By the third set, even Blake was applauding some of Roger’s winners.

 

"There's nothing I could have done, he was too good," said Blake. "I've run out of adjectives to describe him on court. Just more evidence that he's the best of all time."

 

The victory was Roger’s 29th consecutive win, improving him to 92-5 for the year and to 22-2 at the Masters Cup. His only Masters Cup loss since the start of the 2003 tournament was in last year's final.

I meant 2007 not 2207. Just a typo.

Roger,
Once again you simply amaze me. You were so determined right from the first play to show that you truly are the best. I am so glad you beat Nadal and went on to win the championship. Have a great vacation and a wonderful Christmas Holiday. I can't
